And (3) above is something that everyone forgets. We all like to say that we prefer the most accurate reproduction from our systems - but MANY of us contradict this in the choices we make in our actual listening preferences. It would be nice if we were all better at understanding what our true preferences are and were willing to express them accurately as a result. Of course, this applies to our entire lives. We are generally all REALLY bad at this.
